Ordinary people with ambitious goals

We are Esther and Juan Carlos, a Spanish couple committed to the environment, nature, animals, and the creation of a more just and egalitarian society. That is why we were drawn to Cardano’s more equitable model from the beginning.

We have spent half our lives together, and our shared experiences have led us to where we are now – to this new, rewarding, and exciting project.

It was over 18 years ago when we initially supported and volunteered with different environmental organizations. At that time, we were not aware of why we were compelled to help them. Then, at 41 years of age and with intense personal growth, we realized why. The reason is pretty simple: the pursuit of happiness through having a purpose in life.


Helping is our motivation and what compels us to get out of bed every day. We are grateful to
continue helping these organizations financially for many more to come. This brings us hope,
fulfillment, and joy.

We started in our home country of Spain, by financially supporting El Refugio. It’s where we
also adopted our dog called “Donut”, who changed our lives forever. Refugio opened our eyes to the cruel reality of animals that are abandoned and mistreated. We also collaborate with Ayuda en Acción, sponsoring a girl to attend school. Education is one of the pillars of a fair and democratic system.

Over the years, we traveled and lived in different parts of the world. In each city we looked for ways to be helpful, such as volunteering at the Loire Atlantique SPCA in Nantes, France. In New Zealand, we fell in love with its magnificent nature and people, so we volunteered at Dove Hospice Palliative Care in Auckland.

Finally, we arrived in Australia. Here we have volunteered with Vinnies. And after the devastating 2019 bushfires, we began an economic collaboration with WWF. We also adopted a koala at Port Macquarie Hospital. Currently, we volunteer at MARSS teaching computer science.

With Stake for Nature, we want to give a voice and spread the vital work of all these organizations and many more that need our help.

Only one

Mahatma Gandhi

The earth offers enough to satisfy the needs of every man, but not the greed of every man.

Water is life

Edward Abbey

Nature is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit, as vital as water or good bread.

Simple love

Vincent Van Gogh

Keep your love towards nature, because it is the true way of understanding art more and more.

Meet The Team


I love reading, writing short stories, and meeting new cultures and friends. I believe in the kindness of human beings. Therefore, one person can help the planet, because one person, plus another, plus another, can create a movement that saves our world and, thus, ourselves.

Juan Carlos

I love traveling and learning new languages and cultures. It saddens me to see this world destroyed by the ambition of people not thinking about tomorrow, but together we can create massive change.


I love walking early in the morning to smell the dew on the flowers. I’m afraid of street noises and fireworks, so I prefer the countryside. My dream is that all families adopt dogs instead of buying them.


I am an attentive manager to the needs of my employees. All I ask is for you to play with me
when I want. I love sunbathing but despise little humans.
